We live in a small town. When I say small, I am not talking about the small towns that you picture in the US. The ones that have one or no stop lights. The one that has Main St. and the one General Store on Main St.
I remember when my parents came to visit they were surprised by the town where I live. They were probably picturing the scenario above because I would complain about how small it it is here.
I have always lived in Indianapolis. And while it is no New York City, it is a city. A decent sized one that has anything you could want. So, moving here I got transported into a small town. While we don't have any stop lights, we do have about 30,000 people. But, we are all shoved into a considerably small area.
Anyways, I am rambling. My point is that this is a commercial free zone. Most of the stores here are the Mom and Pop type joints. You won't find any big grocery store or fast food joint or chain restaurant.
For all of our commercialization needs we travel about 1.5 hours to Aguascalientes. It has most things that I need/want.
But, being that we are in Mexico, there are a small number of books in English that I have stumbled upon. And, opposite of probably the small town image, you are picturing only one isle of a store with books that are in English.
No. No. No. It is MUCH smaller. Take a look.
I wish I hadn't broken it.
